    • A SAD DEATH

      On Sunday, Bessie, the youngest daughter of Mr. John McKenzie, Mill Creek, died after a very brief illness. The little girl was at school on Monday, 16th inst. and that evening was seized with an attack of rheumatic fever, which resulted in her death on the following Sunday. She was a particularly bright and happy child and will be greatly missed in the household of which she was the youngest member. Her parents and family have the sincere sympathy of their friends and neighbors in their sore affliction. The funeral took place on Tuesday last, to Mount View cemetery.
